The system in detail

How the SMA Energy System Large Scale produces electricity from photovoltaics.

  • PV modules

    The PV modules generate direct current from incoming sunlight.

  • Sunny Central UP

    The SMA Sunny Central UP central inverter is the core of your SMA Energy System Large Scale. It converts direct current into alternating current for grid feed-in.

SMA Sunny Central UP inverters

The core of the SMA Energy System Large Scale


As the centerpiece of your SMA Energy System Large Scale, the SMA Sunny Central UP inverter converts the direct current generated by your PV system into alternating current. Its intelligent OptiCool cooling system ensures smooth operation, even in extreme ambient temperatures.

  • With a capacity of up to 4,600 kW

  • The highest power density and system compatibility help reduce logistics, installation and material outlay

  • Increased energy yields and reduced system-specific energy costs through overdimensioning of the PV system by up to 150%.

  • Constant tracking of your energy yields through the web portal.

How it works

  • The PV system generates solar power from sunlight (direct current).

  • The direct current feeds into the inverter.

  • The inverter converts direct current into alternating current for the grid and this can be used directly or fed into the utility grid.
